If and when the Lakers trade Pau Gasol they are probably going to get the better of the deal. They are being prudent and taking their time before pulling the trigger.
According to ESPN the Timberwolves and Raptors have already reached out to the Lakers, but the Lakers want to see how their squad does when they are fully healthy. The Raptors players that would be involved are Andrea Bargnani, Jose Calderon and Linas Kleiza
It is hard to access how good or bad the Lakers are until Steve Nash is back on the court and no one knows when that will happen.
